Pupil Reviews
                     Susan was an amazing driving instructor who helped me pass my driving test first time. 
I came to Susan from another driving instructor who had confused me and had lost the appeal for driving. Susan made my driving experience fun, understandable and safe, i'll always remember her little sayings while driving including 'BOB'!
She makes sure your hours are used effectively so you're not wasting money on hours you don't need, she goes the extra mile to make sure you understand everything- including giving me a theory test session when I was having trouble passing (passed straight away after it!) People who book with Susan not only get a great driving instructor but also will get a very good friend, she's a friendly person who brings out the best in you.

Thank you ever so much for the short time I was with you.
The advice you gave me and the way in which you taught
was calm and effective.
I will be recommending to anyoneI know looking to start driving.
I'd like to thank you once again, Luke Woodcock.

I would like to say a big thank you to Susan, for all her hard work and patience. She is very professional and has a great sense of humour. She made me feel at ease from my very first day and built my confidence gradually and without her efforts I wouldn’t have passed my driving test so quickly. Big thank you to you Susan

Susan was truly the best instructor I could of hoped for. From the start, she made me feel comfortable on the road, and her patience was truly amazing! Whenever I made a mistake, she was always so positive and helped me through any issues. As a first time passer, I would recommend Susan to anyone and everyone looking to have a cheerful and enjoyable experience while driving!
 
 - Taverham

Susan is an absolutely amazing driving instructor and I have just passed my test after driving with her for four months having never driven before. 
Susan is a 'get up and go' type of person, pushing you to do better straight from the first lesson where she gets you to drive home. 
I am so pleased I found Susan as an instructor, she has definitely made me a safe driver and helped me cope with the dreaded heartsease roundabout.

 
 - Blofield

Susan is an excellent instructor, she is kind, patient and so really easy to get along with. She teaches you how to be a great driver alongside how to pass your test so you're far more confident when you actually drive on your own. It may have taken me a year and a half and 2 attempts to pass, but Susan helped me get there. She has helped myself, my sister and two of my friends and no one has ever had a bad thing to say, I will keep recommending her until all my friends can drive. Thank you Susan :).
 
 - Aylsham

Susan is a great instructor. She is really patient and calm. 
I never thought I would be able to drive and was very nervous. Susan always made me feel safe and gave me confidence and I passed first time (aged 27, having been too scared to try to learn previously). 
Susan is flexible on lesson times and really cares about your progress. 
Susan also helped me prepare for my theory test. She offers study sessions and has loads of tips, useful books and cards and points things out when driving on lessons so it really went in. 
Can't thank her enough.

My brother had recently passed his driving test - first time - with Susan as his instructor, so when considering who to choose as my instructor, Susan came highly reccomended. What a great decision. Susan was patient, an excellent teacher and so easy to get on with, she put me totally at ease. I passed first time! I can't praise her highly enough, if you need driving lessons, GO WITH SUSAN!
   - Horsford

Susan made the whole experience of learning to drive enjoyable and gave me confidence in myself very early on. Very easy to get along with and an extremely nice person to help you learn.
 
 - Norwich

Susan gave me confidence and guidance as needed, she is patient and fully committed to her students; giving me room to find my own driving style. After a previous instructor did not work out, I was pleased to find someone who supported me as an individual, who gave practical advice through different methods to help people who are more suited to learning academically or practically. Also Susan’s focus on safety is reassuring; she makes you a good, safe and caring driver for life, not just to get you through the test. I look forward to booking up my ‘Pass Plus’ and feel like I have made a friend for life.  K Hammond. Spixworth. 2013


Susan is one of the best driving instructors out there. She will tailor her teaching style to suit you and her lovely personality will definitely put you at ease. The extra hours she puts in to help on your theory test is excellent and at the end you want to make Susan proud! She is very patient and kind and I would highly recommend her, I passed first time and I know I couldn't have done it without her! Holly Butwright. Wymondham 2013


Susan is a very patient and thoughtful women and I enjoyed spending my time learning to drive with her. She helped to gradually build up my confidence and independence and always made me feel safe. Now I look forward to having a go at pass plus with her. Thank you so much Susan - You're amazing!
:D. Katrina Taylor. Mulbarton. 2013



I think Susan was the perfect driving instructor for me- and many of my friends- because her manner of teaching is very relaxed, helpful, but most importantly, fun. Susan stands out as an instructor as she genuinely cares about her pupils and ensures that they are safe, competent drivers. Thank you so much Susan!  
 - Cawston 2013



Susan is a patient instructor who can work with anyone. I have been driving with automatic license and Sue worked patiently with me and I am happy that I passed my manual car test. Furthermore, she is a good teacher who is always happy and is able to treat her learners as individuals.

Susan is an excellent instructor, she's always happy and is always wanting to help whatever the circumstance! This kind of service makes learning to drive much more fun and enjoyable. I passed first time like many of her other students and thank you very much!! :).

I was with Susan quite a while only driving instructor I had, only one I needed to pass my test, I learned the practical way not the other way like most instructors sit in car parks talking about it, so if your looking for a good experience of learning to drive I'd go with Susan, luckily I passed my test but I wouldn't of done it without Susan, so thankyou!

I passed my test this morning! Susan is a fantastic tutor. She has the patience of a saint and helped me to gain more confidence in my driving abilities. Before I enrolled with Susan I really struggled with parking manoeuvres, but Susan's thorough teaching methods helped to build my confidence, learn how to park and pass my test in a doddle! I can not recommend her highly enough!

Firstly a massive thank you to Susan for getting me through my driving test. Such a lovely lady.. Always looked forward to having driving lessons with Susan as she always made me feel at ease. Always willing to have a laugh but always stayed professional at the same time! Would recommend this lady to anyone :)
Thanks again Susan x.
......................................................

Well, what can I say about Susan that hasn't already be said in the other reveiws. I can't say a bad word about her. The way she taught me, suited me perfectly, she's very easy to talk to and get along with and she took the time to get to know me and always made sure I was comfortable with what she was asking me to do. I could always count on Susan, if I had a question she'd answer it there and then, if I couldn't make a lesson I had booked, I could reschedule and she wouldn't be mad. I can honestly say that I am 100% glad that I went to Susan for driving lessons, she has helped me build my confidence on the road. I can't thank you enough. And I would highly recomend her to anyone looking to start driving and up for a bit of a laugh along the way! :). 9th August 2012 Kate Gall.

I cannot thank Susan enough for all of the help she has given me during my time spent with her. She took the scariness out of learning to drive with her helpful and friendly approach to guiding me. It was no wonder I passed first time with such a brilliant teacher! I now feel really confident when I'm driving and it is all thanks to her!

Susan is a great driving instructor, kind, firm when needs to be and above all a great tutor. I passed first time with her help.
It was a pleasure being taught by her, she puts her pupils first.

 I highly recommend Susan Claxton as a driving instructor. I tried 5 different instructors before her and failed my 1st driving test in London. The experiences were so bad that I thought I would never be able to drive in my life. Susan is really kind, responsible and encouraging. Thanks to her, I passed 2nd driving test smoothly after learning with her for 3 months. That's really fantastic!  Min Gui 20.04.12

 I totally recommend Susan Claxton as a driving instructor. I was so very nervous when I began learning, but Susan made me feel relaxed and comfortable. She is very clear with her advice and instructions which was very easy to learn from. Also, above all we had a great laugh! (And I passed first time!)   Gemma Walker 12.03.12

 Susan is a superb instructor! I have had a couple of bad experiences with previous instructors, but she made me feel at easy, she never lost her temper and has the patience of a saint. Susan installed confidence in me, which previous instructors had sapped from me. I also always enjoyed having lessons with her and she never took advantage by making me have more lessons than I needed!. The combination of her knowledge and amazing outlook on life, makes susan a fantastic instructor!  Mark Doherty Dec 2011

Outstanding teaching both practically and theoretically! If you feel you lack confidence when driving, definitely pick Susan! her friendly and patient approach gets you through every situation with ease. Susan is not only geared to making you pass your test, she teaches the skills you will need for life to make you and the roads safer. The paperwork about what you did in the lesson is given to you to keep, allowing you to reference it if you need to. Manovers are made so simple! Susan is very flexible and does not mind changing lessons at the last minute. A lovely Lady definitely recommended! Thanks Susan.

I was reluctant to start learning to drive but when I finally found Susan as a driving instructor, I knew I had struck lucky and that Susan was right for me. Her positive attitude to learning, enthusiasm and deadication to see me succeed really encouraged me. Thank you Susan for all your hard work and patience with me. I now have the confidence to drive in and around Norwich and can drive myself to work : ).  Anyone who is lucky enough to have Susan as a driving instuctor will not be disappionted,
Looking forward to my 'Pass Plus'

From Roxanne Dec 2011
Susan made me feel at ease from the moment I met her. She's very warm and friendly and a fabulous instructor! We always had a giggle during lessons which made me a lot less nervous as learning to drive is such a serious thing. The handouts she gives after most lessons are priceless and really helpd my understanding of what I was doing during my lessons. Since passing my test I've had so much comfidence in my driving, as Susan taught very thoroughly but in a way that is really easy to understand and remember. I would thorourly recomend Susan to any one who is looking for a safe, professional and friendly instructor : )

From Ketan Vaghasiya. 31/07/11

Susan is an exceptional teacher both practically and theoretically. I felt that she has always a stronger interest in making our road safer, not just limiting to pass driving test. She was always flexible to change according to my working pattern sometimes even at last minute. she has made manoeuvres so easy. and is a loving person and fun to work with. I would 100% recommended Susan for all pupils.

From Jess Butwright. 29/07/11

Since first getting in the driving seat, Susan has been able to make me feel comfortable and more importantly, confident. The extra resources she gave me kept me interested in all parts of driving and I was always keen for the next lesson. I passed first time despite having a limited number of months to do so but I was always sure that Susan would get me through it! I'm proud to say that I will become a safe and confident paramedic with essential driving skills thanks to her! Highly recommended - I will miss her bubbly personality most of all. Thanks again Susan!

From Jenny Barrs 08/07/11

Susan's teaching style in my own experience has been faultless. Each lesson Susan had introduced a new driving skill, yet allowing me time to practise skills I had previously developed. Before I knew it I was driving confidently and most importantly safely! I am very proud of my new driving skill and also achieving this at the age of 31. I can honestly say this was due to the professional and confident teaching style that felt personal to my own ability and pace of learning!Well recommended!

From Lydia Schofield. 08/07/11

Susan is an excellent teacher with lots of patience and encouragement. The lessons are interesting and varied so that you experience a wide range of roads and get to practise your manoeuvres. I really looked forward to my lessons, and Susan is a lovely person to spend 2 hours with! Highly recommended!

 

 

From Stuart 12/10/10

Outstanding. I have my Part 2 booked for next Wednesday, I'm confident I'm going to do well, I've really got the hang of it now, everything's broken down into simple steps, effective and modular, the techniques used for one maneuver are made immediately relatable in the next. I think this is Susan's teaching style, we clicked straight away it's been fun and exciting from the first drive (I was terrified by the way!). I'm 24 and hadn't even considered driving before now, however that's prob a blessing, if you've read the above you know I landed on my feet with this one, this is one of the only reviews I've ever written! If your choosing between driving schools/instructor maybe even deciding between gender? There is a reason I sat here and put the time in  :

Susan was an excellent tutor - friendly, professional and very patient with me as a first-time driving student. I was given my own personal training record to keep track of my lessons, and I passed - first time - much sooner than I thought I would! I would absolutely recommend Susan to anyone thinking about getting behind the wheel
 
 

Train with Susan! :)16-Aug-2010

........................................

I was always nervous about making the transition from motorcycles to cars and had been putting it off for a while, I picked up the phone, had a chat and decided to go for it! The great thing about training with Susan, and why I'm enjoying it so much is that all the information you are given is very clear and concise. communication is so important when learning a new skill, and that as some of you may know, is unfortunately where some instructors are lacking!

I know I want value for money, how about you?!!

Train with Susan, you will NOT be disappointed!! :)

I passed both parts of my driving test first time thanks to Susan, she made the lesson really fun and exciting, I looked forward to my lesson every week, everything I was scared about was broken down into smaller manoeuvres till I got it, All the lessons were well thought out and planed, I would recommend Susan any day of the week.
